some spots did get over an inch, including the concord area. now just about three quarters of an inch below the average for the month of november. so we put a little dent in the deficit for this month. how about these high temperatures today, keep in mind the average is 47 south. low 50's north. 57 in concord, 10 above the average, and it did hit 60 right along the coastline. this will be the warmest we'll see through the next several days, as some cooler air is on the way. speaking of cooler, already down in the 30's in the upper valley and great north woods. on average in the lower 50's from concord points south. it will be chilly overnight, not as warm as last night where many spots held in the 40's and 50's. tonight we're back into the cool zone of the 20's and very low 30's. speaking of cool, much colder air sitting back in the plains states and midwest helping to spawn that snowstorm in places like wisconsin, and also down
into the great lakes. that's moving northeast at least for now. so we enjoy seasonably cooler air and then we do get much colder along about early next week. so here's that snow setting up shop in southern minnesota, down into iowa, pressing up towards wisconsin and chicago. but we will not get in on the snowy side of this storm as it weakens and moves through on sunday, it will pass to our north and that's a warm track for new hampshire. right now tracking fair skies, lots of sun for your saturday. sunday the cloud will likely win the battle over sun, and there could be a couple of widely scattered showers, but the heaviest rain will be off shore and where it's just cold enough could be a couple of mixed or snow showers the the mountains. beyond that it's dry and chilly as we go into early next week. back to out even slightly below the average. clear skies, seasonably cold tonight, lots of sun, cooler tomorrow but very pleasant. a couple degrees above average but not as warm as today.
couple of widely scattered showers on sunday. but temperatures again making a run near 50. then the late november classic chill moves in for monday, tuesday, early wednesday, it's bright and warmer, could be near 50 in spots for thanksgiving. which will be a much different story than it was a year ago. jean: thanks, mike. tom: helping others should be enough of a reason to donate to charity. jean: but some generous donors got a big surprise too, up next you'll see who popped up with a
